Work With Us

The Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre / Rape Crisis South London (RASASC) is a registered charity based in Croydon dedicated to providing services to female survivors of sexual violence.

We provide the national Rape Crisis helpline; offer face to face and group counselling; an advocacy service for survivors reporting through the criminal justice system; a casework service; as well as delivering a large training and prevention programme.

Our service is a very busy women only service with around 60 staff, self-employed workers and volunteers. We are committed to being representative of our society and women who use our services, as well as bringing together those with a variety of skills and experiences to shape what we do and how we work.

In line with this, we are particularly keen to receive applications from women who are minoritised on the basis of their race or ethnicity, sexuality, or disabled status. We also welcome applications from women who have personal experience of sexual violence.

Applications will be accepted from female applicants only as being female is deemed to be a genuine occupational requirement under Schedule 9, Paragraph 1 of the Equality Act 2010.
